This cycle is repeated continuously by the central processing unit CPU , from bootup to when the computer is shut down. In modern computers this means completing the cycle billions of times a second!

Without it nothing would be able to be calculated. To describe the cycle we can use register notation. This is a very simple way of noting all the steps involved. In all cases where you see brackets e. In the case of the first line, the contents of the program counter is loaded into the Memory Address Register. The contents of the Program Counter, the address of the next instruction to be executed, is placed into the Memory Address Register. The instruction at that address is found and returned along the data bus to the Memory Buffer Register.

At the same time the contents of the Program Counter is increased by 1, to reference the next instruction to be executed.

Memory Address Register MAR - the address in main memory that is currently being read or written Memory Buffer Register MBR - a two-way register that holds data fetched from memory and ready for the CPU to process or data waiting to be stored in memory Current Instruction register CIR - a temporary holding ground for the instruction that has just been fetched from memory Control Unit CU - decodes the program instruction in the CIR, selecting machine resources such as a data source register and a particular arithmetic operation, and coordinates activation of those resources Arithmetic logic unit ALU - performs mathematical and logical operations Register notation [ edit ] To describe the cycle we can use register notation.

Exercise: Fetch Execute Cycle. Name 3 registers involved in the Fetch Execute Cycle and describe what each does:. Answer: Program Counter PC - an incrementing counter that keeps track of the memory address of which instruction is to be executed next Memory Address Register MAR - holds the address in memory of the next instruction to be executed Memory Buffer Register MBR - a two-way register that holds data fetched from memory and ready for the CPU to process or data waiting to be stored in memory Current Instruction register CIR - a temporary holding ground for the instruction that has just been fetched from memory.

Fetch, decode, execute

The instruction cycle also known as the fetch—decode—execute cycle , or simply the fetch-execute cycle is the cycle that the central processing unit CPU follows from boot-up until the computer has shut down in order to process instructions. It is composed of three main stages: the fetch stage, the decode stage, and the execute stage. In simpler CPUs, the instruction cycle is executed sequentially, each instruction being processed before the next one is started. In most modern CPUs, the instruction cycles are instead executed concurrently , and often in parallel , through an instruction pipeline : the next instruction starts being processed before the previous instruction has finished, which is possible because the cycle is broken up into separate steps. The program counter PC is a special register that holds the memory address of the next instruction to be executed. During the fetch stage, the address stored in the PC is copied into the memory address register MAR and then the PC is incremented in order to "point" to the memory address of the next instruction to be executed. The MDR also acts as a two-way register that holds data fetched from memory or data waiting to be stored in memory it is also known as the memory buffer register MBR because of this.
